We decided to take a little day trip for our Spring Break (I mean you can't spend your life on the sofa in your underwear, can you?)
Wouldn't this have been a nice picture if Connor had been able to handle pain? Somewhere during the "adventure" he hurt his wrist (zero redness, swelling, bruising, and he could move it...but it hurt bad).
He was so uncomfortable, I had to put him in charge while I ran to the local store to get a wrist band and tylenol.
My quick nursing did the trick because thirty minutes later he felt better.
I saw this place on my friend's FB page and asked her about it. It really seemed like a fun (and reasonable) thing to do.
This is the same friend I always call when I'm lost and she can never tell me how to get there....
....and we got lost and she said "it's in a shopping center somewhere". Luckily we found it without that help. :)
Safari Nation is a really cute indoor park.
We actually had a doctor's appointment, and the nurse overheard us talking and gave us a 10.00 off coupon before we left!! (whooopppp) I love living in a small town.
The kids loved it, everyone had a lot of fun.
The price covers the full day but after a few hours everyone was exhausted.
Even this one.....
We stayed away from the games, but while Connor took a 'wrist break', I won in air hockey!
This felt like a dangerous situation.
The rubber criss cross goes all the way to the top and the bottom is like bubble/syran wrap
Connor was the only one that could climb it without choking himself.
Riding through the Terrain
We ended our day with my first trip to Zaxby's.
(I didn't love it.)
While we ate, we all made up stories about how 'Zaxby' came to be:
Cousin T: There was once a man who got so sick and tired of the rooster crowing and waking him up each morning, he decided to name it Zaxby and kill it! It tasted so good, he started a restaurant.
Connor: There was this guy named Zaxby who loved chicken morning, noon, and night. His friends were like 'Hey Zaxby, if you love it so much why don't you start a restaurant." So he did.
Me: Many moons ago, the village people were hurting and sick. Along came a mysterious drifter who healed them all with the Zaxby recipe sprinkled over chicken. He fell in love with a woman who talked him out of the sacred recipe. She sold it and her ancestors made into a restaurant (that isn't even that good).
Carlee: A boy was being chased and he ran into the room and closed the door. [I'm not sure she got the idea. lol.]
Happy Spring Break
We don't wanna' leave the Safari!!
